minister netanyahu at the u.n. yesterday dramatically laying down his red line for stopping iran's program. one day later it exploded on twitter with the jury still out whether the prop was pure genius or a cheap stunt? a ari fleischer said it was one of the best uses of a chart identify seen. is the world listening? sam stein, and jerusalem based journalist tweeted get ready for 10,000 tweets about the absurd bomb chart. few new more than ambassador dennis ross. he served as the point man in the middle east process for george h.w. bush and bill clinton. he's a political analyst for msnbc. we're glad to have you, ambassador ross. we've seen never a speech like this at the u.n. by such a key, prominent leader. here's what tom brokaw said with it on "the daily rundown." >> think what they would say if president obama did something like or george w. bush or if mitt romney had made a speech and held up that kind of bomb and drew the line across it. it kind of boggles the mind, quite frankly. >> ambassador, what if this had been an american president doing something like this? >> well, i think
here. >> after dropping this on the u.n. yesterday, he talks to obama and romney today. what israel's line in the sand would mean for all of us. plus, have you seen chelsea lately? >> nobody knows what the hell they're getting into when they're running for president. >> one of my favorites guests is back. >> i'm single, yes. >> if men are watching this -- >> yeah, i'm available. you know, just call me maybe. >> funny, feisty as ever, with a new look for her talk show. this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> good evening. the big story, the great debate. in just five days the event that could change the race for the white house permanently. the clock is ticking and the candidates know it. they meet face-to-face on wednesday. this weekend, both will be locked behind closed doors in practice sparring sessions. romney has listed senator rob portman to prep him while obama is working with senator john kerry. latest polls covered with that 47% remark hurting romney. in the battleground state of pennsylvania today. >> -- make sure america leads in our homes, in our economy and in our military.
, to resign as u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and yesterday, here's the response as they try and move forward and turn the majpage. congressman paul ryan and paul mccain. take a look at this approach. >> the response was slow. it was confused. it was inconsistent. they first said that it was a youtube video and a spontaneous mob. we now know that it was a planned terrorist attack. if this was one tragic incident, that would be a tragedy in and of itself. the problem is it's part of a bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is unraveling literally before our eyes on our tv screens. >> i think it interferes with the depiction that the administration is trying to convey, that al qaeda is on the wane, that everything's fine in the middle east. >> you think it's political? >> i think there are certain political overtones. how else could you trot out our u.n. ambassador to say it was spontaneous? >> maybe it was. >> five days later? that doesn't pass the smell test. it was ever ignorance or willful intelligence. >> whether you agree with him or not, senator mccain has the credibili
, am bush, we believe that with our partners, again, a great public private partnership, u.n. women, is a partner of ours in this initiative, and many others, and we will achieve that number of 5 million, and here is another great example, where thiss connected once again, not just to our water neutrality, not just to us are, our belief of stronger sustainable community, but also to that initiative of 5 by 20. >> rose: when you go into a country whether it is africa or asia or latin america, wherever it might be, what is the breakdown in terms of hiring, in terms of local versus outside, in terms of men versus women? meaning the comparisons. >> in terms of local versus outside? >> rose: what is the goal? >> well in terms of local versus outside it is almost all local. >> rose: right. >> so we are a local business that hires locally, that produces locally, distributes locally, sells locally and pays taxes locally. >> rose: all right. the developing markets have become huge for you, even more so than north america or not? >> well, let me just put it into perspective. the three and a h
skeptically after abbas' speech at the u.n. yesterday which was just terrible, just attack after attack after attack, and no opportunity to really reconcile, but he speaks differently to the world audience, to the u.n. and to folks like me. >> to be fair, i watched netanyahu's speech. he barely mentioned the palestinian peace process. he gave it piecemeal. he was much more focused on ahmadinejad and iran. >> look, the palestinians do not pose an existential threat to israel. i think they should resolve this issue in a two-state solution. iran, one bomb could destroy israel as one of the heads of iran recently said. if one bomb were dropped on israel it would destroy israel forever. israel might retaliate and kill 10 or 20 million muslims but there are 110 million of them. so israel has to put the iranian situation first. that's correct. i think they are actually related in some way. i do think that if the israelis do make it a good peace offer and if they can resolve this with their own security intact, it will help create an international consensus against iran. >> let me bring in dan senor.
-border shelling. the syrian ambassador to the u.n. offered condolences today in a letter he presented to u.n. officials. meanwhile, turkey's parliament held an emergency session, authorized cross-border military operations into syria. doesn't mean they're going to happen. they just authorized them. the close ties between syria and turkey, that they once had, they now have been severely strained. i spoke to ivan watson a short time ago. turkey's parliament held an emergency closed door session today. what was the outcome of that? >> reporter: they voted in favor of a new resolution which is rather vaguely written, but basically it gives the turkish government authority to send its armed forces into quote, unquote, foreign countries, basically in response for the deaths of these five civilians on wednesday. it's very clear that this is focused on syria in particular and it says that the turkish government can decide the scope or the size or the duration of any of these proposed military operations. turkish officials have come out and said this is not a war resolution. they're saying this is mo
time for world leaders? >> no. look the the is going to be actively involved at u.n. general assembly. >> bill: gibbs, what can you say? >> this is different. he has a neutral expression that is downward just slightly. he might look angry but he is not angry but it gets tighter and mouth goes down further. >> bill: when you see angry, isn't it annoyance rather than anger? >> yes. >> bill: you can be annoyed at the tone of the question, but if you are angry you are angry? >> okay, don't scare me. >> bill: i want to give everybody an example. >> we'll use annoy answer. at the end of this, he, annoy yanks. but he tiltsd over in this vulnerable position. smiles and annoyance and then at the end of this he gains hits compohere you go. plenty more ahead as factor moves ahead. the great american news quiz terrible decisions made by presidents. and miss megyn kelly on the first debate, what does mitt romney have to do to defeat president obama.

for the opening of the u.n. to bring in business leaders and philanthropists and leaders of nongovernmental groups across america and the world. every year, we fly a number of people in who couldn't afford to be here. they sit together in working sessions and develop commitments and we help, we work all yearlong to help people develop these commitments and help people keep them. so, it's an organic sort of networking thing now that goes on and on and on. yesterday, i went to one of our working groups on haiti. we helped each other to keep these commitments and kept score. this is what we have done. this is what we haven't done. i think that until there is some other mechanism through which this can happen, we should keep doing this. because you know, nobody is running for anything. we don't have to produce miracles, all we do is produce progress. we keep pushing rocks up the hill. i think there's a real need for that in the world today. it can't all be done over the internet. there needs to be face time and help people keep the commitments. >> people see you putting on this event. they heard you m
on this program minutes from now. no letup in tax the rich mania. the u.n. takes aim at the richer people in america and europeans riot again to make them pay for, well, for everything. and then there is this, the european beat americans at golf again. but cheer up, "varney & company" is about to begin. >> good morning, "varney & company," today is monday october the 1st. wednesday is the first presidential debate and the obama campaign spent the weekend trying to low up media expectations that the president's already won. most mainstream polls do indeed have president obama in the lead, but according to rasmussen, governor romney has an edge among certain voters. 43% of likely voters say they are certain they will vote for mitt romney. 42% say they'll vote for the president. that's a very slight edge, but 15% of voters say they are uncommitted, with a number that large, the debate takes on added importance. new jersey governor chris christie in sharp contrast to the media thinks that romney will pull off a clear win this week. listen to this. >> i've seen mitt romney do this before. he'
think? >>i think that suggestion that senator none u.n. -- nunn has made is the right thing we should do, i do not see sequestration, fiscal cliff, i see congress blinking very big time, saying, let's delay this. neil: a lame duck second that decides -- session that decides? >> no, i think -- maybe they will do it on the lame duck, they come back on the third of january. and because no one wants to be responsible for their consequences that would come if they did nothing. so the instinct let's put it off a while. neil: we've done that forever. >> that is not the solution. neil: i agree. senator nunn, to that point, if we do something like that, are we reinforcing the credit ratings agencies' desire to downgrade us, that is stuff of banana republic and now there will be hell to pay for doing it. >> i think that bob is basically correct. this is an issue of rating agency. but fundamental issue is a morale issue and a generational issue, beyond the numbers we can deal with the numbers, all sorts of people on both sides that can work this out. but, the real signal to the markets and world an
say the u.n. security council has fallen back into a kind of paralysis. you could look at the international trade environment and wonder about that. this is the answer to your question, to me, and i think john and i would agree, a world in which the u.s. is still strong but all of these institutions are eroding is not a world i want to live in. the u.s. really does have an interest in trying its best to shore up these institutions. >> bob is coming my way. this is great. [laughter] just a couple quick points. my thesis is not that these institutions are independent. they are infused with power. they are instruments of power. they are used to signal limits on power. power is never divorced from institutions. in that regard, i argue the u.s. has been so brilliant on the world stage for half a century or longer because it has tied its power to these institutions that has both allowed it to make its power and more durable and expensive but also make it more limited and less based on the indiscriminate arbitrary use of power in the more literal sense. there is an argument ab
iran at the u.n. today. prime minister benjamin netanyahu urging the world to draw a red line to stop iran from building a nuclear bomb. >> where should a red line be drawn? a red line should be drawn right here. before, before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> meanwhile, palestinian president mahmoud abbas accuses israel of what it calls ethnic cleansing. >> it is a campaign of ethnic cleansing, ask the palestinian people. >> tony blair worked out of number 10 downing street into what may be the toughest job, middle east quartet representative. he joins me now. thank you, mr. blair. it's been a big week with everything you're involved with now in the middle east. start with benjamin netanyahu's speech. very, very hard about iran, very clear and i will play a little clip in a moment of this bomb chart he produced. the big question i guess is -- two big questions. do you believe that israel is genuinely planning to do some kind of preemptive strike based on the rhetoric we're now hearing, and if they do, what should the reaction be parti
, msnbc special correspondent, tom brokaw. you have seen a lot of u.n. speeches. >> jon stewart teed it up saying it looks like a wiley coyote cartoon. this is a serious issue. seems the way the prime minister presented it before the united nations. >> had an american president did something like this, what would the reaction be? i am sort of shell shocked. >> take the two candidates, think about what they would have said if president obama had done something like that. >> george w. bush. >> from the right or george w. bush, or if mitt romney made a speech and held up that kind of a bomb and drew the line. it boggles the mind. these are serious issues. they are complex. the country and the world deserves to know exactly where we are in the process and where we're going to get to. >> i know that particularly netanyahu always savvy about the american media. this was clearly designed so that more of us would cover this. it was an and t-- antic. >> i think probably benjamin netanyahu's standing with important leaders is pretty well fixed, i don't think it moves it one way or another. he is a h
